Dear Selena

“Write a poem – it doesn’t need to be epic length – in which you discuss something unimportant in a grandiose manner.”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

Oh dark haired wonder

With skin dyed deep by an artificial sun

How could this man

– he is barely a man –

be your lover

He runs wild with dogs and noble alike

Drinks the ale of common folk

While discarding the wine of gods

Drunk – he staggers

Swerves

He is not above the law

As his record shows

And you mi’lady

have made your choice
